Elder’s Meditation – Respect

Elder’s Meditation – Respect

Equals (=)

“People are equal partners with the plants and animals, not their masters who exploit them.”

— Haida Gwaii, Traditional Circle of Elders

As human beings, we are not above anything nor are we below anything. Because of being equal, we need to discuss a little about the value of respect. Not just respect when it come to human beings, but respect when it come to everything. We are not masters over things; we are caretakers for the Great Spirit. We need to treat all things with respect.

Great Spirit, let me accept and see all things as equal.
